    Hello, My sister has a 10 gallon aquarium with a betta and she wants to put some Kuhli loaches in. I haven’t had any luck finding any at my local stores. I am looking for a good quality website to order them from. I am in Plano texas

    A 10 gallon tank isn’t recommended for those. If she really wants those, the minimum tank size is 20 gallons.

    Aquaticarts.com is the only reputable website I know of.

    A 10 is fine for kuhli loaches. They’re tiny. Check out Trinsfish. com

    That’s not what I’ve been told (and by doing research). They can get anywhere up to 4 inches and do better in a school of 3 or more and a tank that’s at least 20 gallons as they’re pretty active.

    Healthiest fish/inverts I’ve come across for sure. Haven’t tried their plants though. I usually purchase those from buceplants.com

    Have you talked to The Fish Gallery up there about ordering you some? I’ve had managers at the one down in here in Houston help me out.

    Oh heck I forgot about Dallas North Aquariums. That’s a heck of a store too. I’m surprised they haven’t got any.

    I ordered plants from there. They came in great shape and took off right away in my tank.

    I’m going to have to try their plant selection when I upgrade. Thanks!

    For a 10 gallon, I can only think of snails or shrimp. If you’re going to go with shrimp though, try the cheap ones first like ghost shrimp and see how they do with the betta.

    You can try Pygmy Corydoras as they only grow about an inch or so I believe. They’re schooling fish so I don’t know how many will be adequate. Try to do some research on them to see if it could work.

    Not sure if there would be any aggressiveness too. Some Bettas can deal with tankmates and others don’t tolerate them well. Something to keep an eye out for if you introduce anything else in his tank.

    Several posts have been removed/edited.
    I would remind you that arguing amongst yourselves derails the thread & does not help the Op with their question, please stay on topic & respond to the Op’s questions & not each other .

    He is my old betta that I had for a couple months. He was in a community tank with me with no problems. I had neon tetras and albino Cory’s. I gave him to my sister because I wanted to go a different direction with my aquarium. I feel like maybe I could try Amano Shrimp because they are bigger.
